Fox News links with former KKK white supremacist..

From American Progress :

MEDIA -- FOX NEWS PROMOTES WHITE SUPREMACIST ORGANIZATION:'s top logo boasts "White Pride Worldwide" and features a town hall radio discussion with former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. But a FOX News affiliate ran a story promoting it as "a web site with everything from dating advice and homemaking threads, to discussion boards that focus on news that white activists want to know."

FOX's coverage hasn't gone unnoticed; on a Nov. 9 comment on the site's forums, Senior Moderator James Kelso writes, "Thanks to all for the positive assessments of this interview with Fox TV. The Fox TV Carolina staff was very professional and made it easy One detail that I forgot (until just yesterday) was to unmoderate our new Stormfront Member, FOXSC, so that Fox could post more easily on Stormfront. We've also got Fox5News and Fox-News as Stormfront Members."

So much for "fair and balanced."
